Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint in Beach

I've had good experiences with Liz Earle's skin care in the past and was very excited to try the Sheer skin Tint(£21.00) which was also the brand's first step into color. I prefer tinted moisturizers and medium coverage foundations over heavy, full coverage foundations any day so, this was right up my alley. The sheer skin tint comes in three shades and I chose the darkest shade '03 Beach' which seemed like a good pick for medium to dark skin tones. If you are anything between an NC35 and 42 in mac, Beach is a good match.

What I like about Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint: 

  • Lightweight, creamy texture that goes on super smooth even without having any moisturizer on.
  • There's quite a bit of product in there, although the tube looks to be small in size.
  • The dewy, silky finish makes it a great choice for dry skin.
  • Coverage is medium but, so natural looking, I even skip applying powder on top.
  • Comes with SPF15.

The not so good things about Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint:
  • Only three shades are currently available. Darker skin tones can still get away with beach but, it may not be the perfect match.
  • The product has a very weird smell. It does fade once applied onto skin but the smell is quite strong initially.
  • If you have oily skin, be sure to keep some blotting sheets in hand or top if off with powder since it is very dewy looking and might make t-zone oily.
  • I don't see the product being listed on the Liz Earle US website, only on the UK site.

If you have dry skin, the Liz Earle Sheer skin tint is a nice choice when you just need a little bit of coverage with a natural finish. Since it is sheer, most people can get away with one of the three shades the range has. But, I wish they'd add more colors in the future.

Have you tried the Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint?

  1. Looks like a great tint indeed, but just by looking at the ingredient list I'm scared to put it on. Aluminium, parabens, talc...nothing for me...

    1. Hi G,

      I was worried too, since it had dimethicone but, luckily I did not break out. But the paraben part was disappointing!

  2. Yeah, I've tried the Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint as well and I just couldn't find a good color match in the three shades! I'm not too cross about it though because I didn't like the product that much, I have oily skin with lots of discoloration, it slid right off and didn't have nearly enough coverage! Such a bummer since everyone raves about Liz Earle products.
    I hope you get lots of use out of this though since you said you don't like to use heavy foundations! xox

    1. Yup, agree with you on the oily skin thing. I did feel it would not work so well on oily skin. I have ultra-dry skin so, I like the creaminess of the product! Hope you find a good tinted moisturizer :)

  3. I love a lot of LE products, and I have dry skin, so I think I need to try this:)
